Save

Make sheet quilts guarantee that you will always have a quilt to match your favorite bedding. These quilts are a great project for beginning sewers and quilters. They are inexpensive and easy to make.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 flat sheets
  • Quilt batting
  • Thread
  • Yarn or embroidery floss
  • Sewing machine
  • Quilting pins
  • Quilting frames
  • Sewing scissors
  • Buy 2 flat sheets of the same size. Wash and dry them.

  • Iron the sheets. Use sewing scissors to cut off the top parts of both sheets.

  • Lay one sheet, face down, on the floor. Lay quilt batting flat on the sheet, leaving a half-inch border around the entire quilt.

  • Lay the second sheet, face up, on top of the batting. Pin the sheets to the batting, in several places, using quilting pins.

  • Attach the quilt to a quilting frame. Use yarn or embroidery thread to tie the quilt. Make a tie every four to six inches, covering the entire quilt.

  • Remove the quilt from the frame. Trim any excess batting and uneven edges.

  • Pin blanket binding around the entire edge of the quilt. Sew the binding on using a sewing machine or stitch by hand. Trim all loose threads.

Tips & Warnings

  • "Airplane" the yarn or embroidery floss to make tying the quilt quicker.
  • Use one flannel sheet and one poly cotton sheet.
  • Double tie the knots.
  • Don't forget to remove all of the pins.
